It's official...

My sweet, sweet daughter is 21!!  Wow!! How can it be???  Happy Birthday Sweetie!!! I love you!!  In honor of my sweet girl's special day, I used her as a subject for my latest So Sketchy project.  I love this picture of her laughing with a joy from deep within.  This picture brings so much joy to my heart!!!  I wish you many moments of pure laughter my sweet girl!! Laughter is good medicine!!!

Challenge #72 at Scrapping the Music is Lullaby, by the Dixie Chicks.  What a fun song to scrap.  I decided to let the picture speak for itself in this layout and just keep it very simple!  Isn't this picture just precious!  The journaling states, "this picture makes my heart sing".  My kids are so lucky to have a daddy who loves them so much. I used Mellisa Frances paper and lace and Making Memories Alphas.  I also used a page from my old hymnal.  This is one of my favorite layouts ever!!  I love you sweetie!!

Tomorrow I should have some sneaks from my LRS February designs!!!  

Today I will leave you with the chorus from Matthew West's song, More.
I love you more than the sun And the stars that I taught how to shine 
You are mine, and you shine for me too I love you yesterday and today And tomorrow, I'll say it again and again I love you more
He does love you more and I hope you will feel the light of his love in      your hearts today!!

Happiest of birthdays to your beautiful young lady! Amazing how fast time flies. My son turned 21 this past July and it seems only yesterday I was referring to him as "my little man"! The layouts are absolutely amazing. Such different emotions from each, but both speak straight from the heart! Have a wonderful day!
